The higher firmness and better photosynthesis allowed the double plents to become much bigger. The towerplent is a descendant of the double plent and is so big that it can compete with other plants in the Huggs Rainforest. The average size is 6 to 7 meters tall, but there are some specimens which are about 10 meters tall. Due to their high photosynthesis rate, they grow much faster than most plants and reach the sunlight earlier. Because there is less sunlight at the bottom of the forest than above, the leaves at the trunk atrophied while the leaves at the top became larger. Its thorns degenerated because it focuses on a fast growth.

Living Relatives (click to show/hide)

These are randomly selected, and organized from lowest to highest shared taxon. (This may correspond to similarity more than actual relation)

None found. Note that this does not necessarily mean it has no living relatives at all, but that, assuming all taxonomy is filled in, its entire phylum is extinct; any relatives it does have likely do not resemble it.
